When the Stars Go Dark  by Paula McLain   

A psychological thriller featuring a seasoned but fragile detective running away from her own personal tragedy only to find herself drawn into the search for an abducted girl. You’ll never guess who did it!



How to Apologize by David LaRochelle, Illustrated by Mike Wohnoutka
This is such a wonderful and humorous way to help kids understand the importance of saying sorry and how to say it. Love it.



The Anthropocene reviewed : essays on a human-centered planet by John Green

Taking a hard left from his standard young adult fare, John Green presents a collection of essays which collectively become a lovely memoir and personal history of mental health, his journey into adulthood, and the ups and downs of being a person in the world today. Each is styled as a review on a topic, like Sunsets, Air Conditioning, or Haley’s Comet, given in the context of his personal history. It’s a silly approach but a very poignant collection. I give this book four and a half stars. 



The Elephant in the Room by Holly Goldberg Sloan




Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Viera Rigler

Humorous time travel, great as an audio stream on CloudLibrary.
